Return Of The Old School Vol. 2

Old School (and some new school rap) tonight. I didn’t plan on that, it just kind of worked out that way. It also worked out that all the bands begin with D. Although that’s awesome because I can tell all of you to “suck on deez!”

No need to chastise me, I’m ashamed of myself.

Ever listen to the Delton 3030 album? It’s insane. It takes place in the dystopia of 3030, cannibals roam the wastelands and street kids have to fight off evil robots so they can get home in time to watch Strange Brew on TV. Fighting for them all is Del Tha Funkee Homosapien and his crew, who are traveling the cosmos to compete in the Intergalaic Rap Battle. It’s totally awesome. It also features Dan The Automator, Prince Paul, Damon Alburn, Sean Lennon and your mom. Go buy it. These remixes are from a 12” single that I bought for four bucks and will cherish for the rest of my life.

Digable Planets
Rebirth Of Slick (Cool Like Dat) (Crashing Giant Step Mix)
Remember when Target used this song in one of their ads? They took out the line ‘black like that’ because Target is The Man. Stupid Whitey. This remix is from a 12”.

DJ Kool
Let Me Clear My Throat (Old School Reunion Remix feat. Biz Markie and Doug E. Fresh)
Let Me Clear My Throat (Funkmaster Flex Remix)
Let Me Clear My Throat (45 King Bass ‘N’ Funk Remix)
I posted some remixes of this track last year (and I’m not reposting them right now, so don’t ask) but I failed to mention then that this is probably my favorite rap track of all time. It’s probably one of my favorite tracks of all-time period, and can go next to “Atomic Dog” as one of the very few songs that I can listen to over and over again and never get sick of. The Old School mix was the first version I ever heard, and it’s still my favorite, although the Funkmaster Flex one is pretty good too. The 45 King one is weird, since it takes out that crazy horn loop that the song is known for. Even weider is the fact that the loop comes from a song by The 45 King and he’s the one taking it out on the remix.
